    1/2 cup coconut milk

Toasting the curry powder is not necessary, but it adds depth to the flavor of the curry. Be careful not to burn the spices. If that happens, you need to clean the pan well and start over.

Serve with brown rice or naan, if desired.


Add onions, garlic and carrots and oil to pan, cook until onions are slightly translucent. Add dry spices and ginger, cooking 1 to 2 minutes. Add chicken broth slowly, stirring constantly. Once incorporated, add coconut milk, tomato paste, yogurt. Bring to a boil. Add chicken, lentils, and peas. Reduce heat to a simmer, cook until lentils are cooked through (if using precooked lentils, cook approximately 20-25 minutes).

Just prior to serving, add lemon juice. Remove from heat, stir well, and serve.
